§ 51.130  PRIVATE SYSTEM REQUIRED,
   (A)   Connection requirements.  Where a public wastewater sewer is not available according to the provisions of this chapter, at the owner’s expense, building sewers shall be connected to private wastewater disposal systems, subject to the requirements of this chapter and the requirements of the State Department of Health and Environmental Control (SCDHEC).
   (B)   Design, construction, operation and maintenance requirements.  Where the owner desires the Commission to assume responsibility for the operation and maintenance of a new wastewater treatment system and/or lift station, the facilities shall be designed and constructed in accordance with the Commission's requirements, and shall be subject to its review and approval. Where the owner desires the Commission to assume responsibility for an existing wastewater treatment system and/or lift station, the existing facilities shall have been designed, constructed and operated in compliance with any applicable SCDHEC requirements.
